BlacKkKlansman“Spike Lee has really found his mojo again with this thrill ride of a movie based on the true story of how a young black police officer in Colorado went undercover and infiltrated the local chapter of the Klu Klux Klan in the 1970s. It’s a fast-moving genre mash-up of the blaxploitation flicks of the era, a buddy cop movie, and a savage satire of Trump’s America. It may be set in the early seventies, but Lee lets rip in a furious fusillade that makes repeated points about modern day USA with chilling accuracy. Most of all though, with its abrupt shifts of tone and mood, BlacKkKlansman is also very, very funny. John David Washington plays Ron Stallworth, the very first black police officer in Colorado Springs… Stallworth is a resourceful young man who yearns to be a detective… and decides to investigate the other side—the Klu Klux Klan… An initial phone call to the local chapter leads to an audacious undercover operation with Ron playing a racist and bigoted white man on the phone, while his Jewish colleague Philip ‘Flip’ Zimmerman (a great Adam Driver) plays Ron in person as he raises in the estimation of the local brotherhood… Topher Grace also turns in a great performance as then Grand Marshall David Duke… Stallworth’s incredible story has provided Lee with his best movie in years and handed John David Washington his breakout role. He is coolly audacious and humble as he goes about what is a very dangerous operation, keeping his anger in check at all times… Energetic snappy and sassy, BlacKkKlansman is a rip-roaring period movie that ranges from farce to cop caper with real style, all while making some chilling points about contemporary society.”—Alan Corr, Radio- RTÉ (Radio-Television of Ireland)
